Pride, elegance, passion, lively tacaneo (footwork), singing castanets and hypnotic rhythms are hallmarks of Spanish dance. This world-renowned Spanish dance company shares the rich traditions of the dance, music, literature, and culture of Spain through contemporary and classical Spanish dance, folkloric and Flamenco accompanied by guitar and percussion. For over 40 years, this ensemble has shared the history and contemporary importance of culturally specific art. Style, flair and bravura are ever-present!
“…undeniable sensuality…I thought my heart would fly out of my chest when the dancers performed.” — (Laura Molzahn, Chicago Reader)
